Top 10 Tips for Your Cars

By Team WayWheels | Founder | January 28th, 2016 | Self | 0 Comments

Taking good care of your vehicle is the most important thing for a car owner. It can make the difference between being a proud owner of a good looking, long lasting, reliable machine, and saying goodbye to a rusty, faded-paint jalopy that fell apart or broke down long before it was designed to. Here are some tips for you car lovers out there

1) Check and change the oil - Nothing will help an engine last more than regular oil and filter changes will. Conversely, nothing will destroy an engine faster than neglecting oil-level checks or fresh-oil changes.

2) Flush the cooling system and change coolant once a year – A 50:50 mix of coolant and distilled water keeps the cooling system in good shape and prevents corrosion and deposits from building up inside the cooling system.

3) Change out transmission and differential oils - They do not require frequent servicing, but these fluids must be changed at frequent intervals. Always use transmission fluid or gear oil of the recommended type and viscosity. Kind of scientific but a quick Google search or your mechanic will be able to help out!!

4) Keep the car clean - While washing the outside of the vehicle is obvious, most everything the vehicle ran over can also get stuck to the underside. Hosing off winter salt and road grime is a good idea.

5) Greasing - Everything with moving parts in a car needs grease to survive. This ball joint went into early retirement due to poor lubrication.

6) Waxing - A little waxing keeps paint looking good and protected. Apply wax at least every six

7) Parking the vehicle in the shade, using a window deflector screen and/or applying a UV protectant to prevent the plastic and vinyl from drying out is a great tip.

8) Remember Lubricating Driveline components such as u-joints and gears also require regular lubrication. Use lubricants to keep them functioning.

9) Brake fluid is hygroscopic Okay that is a tough word but what it means is that it is adept at attracting moisture. Moisture causes brake components to corrode and fail. Replace fluid and bleed system once a year. Brake fluid is cheap so don’t cheap out on it.

10) Check - Inspect, clean, and repack wheel bearings with wheel bearing grease according to service intervals. Wheel bearings and grease are inexpensive compared to spindle and hub replacement.
